Another location that is particularly popular with the tourists is Pattaya. Located on the east coast of Thailand it is the most visited city other than Bangkok. Pattaya Beach runs parallel to the city center. Along the beach road, there are shops, restaurants, bars and hotels. One thing that frustrates some tourists is the presence of street vendors who come around to sell everything from sunblock to DVD's. All you need to do however is politely decline and they will graciously move on to another tourist.
